    Wonder when Rev 3 or whatever it’s called will be announced.

    Unless we see more major content release for the game I don’t think we will see anything but updates. I’m sure they are working on the next Guilty Gear + 3 other fighting games :P

    Good fighter + awesome OST. It may not be the easiest one for beginners, but if you use the games decent tutorial mode you can learn it in not time :)

    It’s awesome they keep updating their games and they make some solid fighters :D

    Define major content. Last time I checked 2 characters were enough to justify a new version.

    Ah okay. I thought Rev 2 was with the final DLC and all the update up til the release. For the most when we see a second release of a game it’s a complete edition. If that so, I guess a Rev 3 could happen

    Rev 2 was the third release of the same game, so I’d say anything is possible. ArcSys are as bad as Capcom in that regard.

    Jesus. No wonder digital sales is so high. What is the point owning the physical version of the first release if you need to DL 2-20GB updates xD

    There is little sense buying ArcSys games day 1. Also you couldn’t upgrade the first version to the latest one.

    This is the reason I almost never buy games the first month they are out. Bugs of all kinds, broken launch or shitty port job. I got Rev 2 version for that very reason. To avoid major patch downloads and paying for DLC. That’s the same reason I haven’t bought Injustice 2 yet. Waiting for the COMPLETE EDITION. Hell if you buy the launch version of Horizon Zero Dawn now, you have to DL an 16GB patch before you can play the game…

    I don’t mind patches, but selling half a game at launch is something I can’t support.
